Do you remember that MOBA that was shown off during the Apple iPhone 6 event? Well, it’s called Vainglory, and its release dates on iOS has been announced.
First of all, developer Super Evil Megacorp has already launched Vainglory in South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand – that happened on November 2nd.
Next up is Europe, which will get it on November 13th. Vainglory will then come to North and South America, the Middle East, and Africa on November 18th. China, Japan, and Korea will be getting it at a later date.
Oh, and to run Vainglory, you’re going to want an iPad 2 or above, or an iPhone 5S or any model up from that.
Vainglory is Super Evil Megacorp’s attempt to replicate the success of League of Legends and DOTA on mobile and tablets—a space where MOBAs haven’t really taken off, at least, not yet. The studio should have the talent on board for the job, given that it consists of ex-Blizzard, ex-Riot, and ex-Rockstar employees.
Matches in Vainglory last for 20 minutes and each team consists of three players. As with all MOBAs, loadouts are all-important, and they’re very customizable, with guns, spells, swords, and other monstrosities to roll out into battle with. What’s more important, though, is how well you can work as a team.
Vainglory is a free-to-play game, but it should allow for unlimited play without having to spend anything at all. More heroes and other content will be added with future updates. You can find out more about Vainglory on its website.
